GOOD VIBRATIONS

Directed by Lisa Barros D’Sa and Glenn Leyburn

In probably the first time in years, I watched a film before knowing anything about it. No trailer, no wiki search: nothing. This film was Good Vibrations, a sparky Irish film about the real life record-store-owner-turned-producer Terri Hooley. There were moments that delved a bit into cliche “bottom-of-the-barrell-but-then-comes-redemption” moments, but the film did surprise me in it’s use of sound and archive footage in scenes used to break up the acts of the film. And it’s HEART. Unexpected in the best way possible.
